Welcome to Mississauga and our 2019 Visitor Guide. On behalf of the Mississauga Tourism Board and our hospitality industry, I invite you to find out why Mississauga is the place to visit. Build your “Bucket List” as you plan your stay. There’s a lot to choose from, whatever you enjoy doing. Take in a show or view fine art at a local theatre or art gallery. Spend time outdoors, fish along the Credit River, walk or run our trails, play at top golf courses, or see nature and wildlife. Watch top-level sports action like hockey, basketball, soccer, baseball and cricket. Visit a summer festival at Celebration Square. Or just relax at a soothing spa.

My Bucket List % ●T  ry new flavours Enjoy a relaxing meal in one of Mississauga’s great restaurants, to sample cuisine from hundreds of different countries.

●S  ee a show Take in a live performance at one of our theatres.

● Run  the Mississauga

Marathon My ultimate! While my max distance is 5K, it’s a thrill to join thousands of runners on our scenic waterfront.

You can also find the perfect place to stay, in diverse hotels and motels across our clean, safe city. What is on your Bucket List? Please come visit… our doors are open. Yours truly,

Councillor Pat Saito, Ward 9 Chair, Mississauga Tourism Advisory Board
